ublished by Methune, London; 1926. 8vo. This is a beautiful first edition/first impression of this timeless children’s classic by A. A. Milne. Bound in it’s original dark green boards with gold gilt detailing and lettering. There is some minor bumping to the spine ends and board corners and a small mark just a couple of milimetres in diameter just below the gilt illustration on the front board. There is rubbing to the rear board, with some discolouration, but the binding remains sound and the book is very smart. Inside, there is some toning to the endpapers, but otherwise the pages are exceptionally clean and bright with just the odd age spot or hint of toning to the rims of pages. Overall this lovely book is in Near Fine condition and really is in beautiful condition.

The dustjacket is also in Near Fine condition. There is some minor bumping to the spine ends and board corners, and some slight rubbing in places, particularly over the author’s name on the front panel, with some loss. There is the odd small mark, with one in particular on the front panel, which is quite dark and measures about a centimetre in diameter. However, there is only slight darkening to the spine, which is common for this book, and the jacket is overall bright and in very nice condition indeed. It is the very rare original first issue jacket, with 117th thousand at the top of the rear flap. 

Overall, this is a particularly lovely copy of this beloved rare first edition. It would be a definite investment for any collector to add this to their collection, as it is sure to grow in value over the years.

Published by Methuen, London in 1927. This is a lovely copy of the children's classic by A. A. Milne, beautifully illustrated by E. H. Shepherd. This lovely book is in its original red cloth boards with beautiful gold guilt detailing. There is some minor rubbing to the top and bottom of the spine and to the corners of the boards. Inside there is a birthday inscription to the front free endpaper (as so often these books were given as sixth birthday presents). There is one very small bump/dent to the front board and the spine is not quite as bright as it once was, but otherwise the book is in lovely condition, with clean bright pages and is in very good to near fine condition.  The book comes in its original light blue dust jacket, which is in very good condition. There is just some minor rubbing to the extremities, correlating to that of the boards, and some minor loss and chipping to the corner and spine ends. There is one small tear to the lower edge of the front cover and some light discolouration to the spine. In all, this is a lovely copy of this children's classic and would be a worthwhile addition to any collection.
